The primary goal of this course is for you to be able to develop your skills as a web programmer in order to display data programmatically via a web site. To accomplish this, you will be completing a project over the course of our 12 weeks together intended to showcase what you have learned. There will be 5 separate deliverables from a proposal to a complete site and presentation.
This assignment is deliverable #1: familiarizing yourself with the data available.
After completing your data dictionary, create a brief Word document that addresses the following:
In a brief paragraph, describe the perspective your group is taking. Are you a tourist board from your city? Are you a group of Airbnb hosts? Are you a pro-Airbnb group hoping show the benefits the service brings? Are you an anti-Airbnb group trying to demonstrate how it changes the community? Any other approach?
Once you have established your perspective, propose at least five interesting questions that could be answered through the data via a chart or a map. Two should be answered through a map, two should be answered through a chart (bar, line, or pie), and the fifth can be answered through either a map or a chart. Because of how the data is aggregated, questions MUST be based on neighborhoods within your city (not on individual properties).
The questions should be significantly different from one another (not just minor changes from one to the next)
Which neighborhoods in Asheville have an average daily price of less than $150?
This question will be addressed using a map that plots the location of each matching neighborhood When a user clicks on the neighborhood outline, they will see the name of the neighborhood, the average number of people accommodated in its properties, the average nightly price, and the average price per night for each extra person.
You will be graded on:
